One Fish, Two Fish...

Red Fish, Blue Fish!

In honor of Dr. Seuss day back in March, I decided to do a One Fish, Two Fish project with Kindergarten.  This was a two day project.

Day 1:  We read the first few pages of Dr. Seuss's book and talked about the different types of fish we saw in the illustrations.  I did a directed drawing, demonstrating two different types of fish. (One standing, and one that was swimming).  After drawing the fish with black oil pastel, students used tempera paint to add color to the fish.

Day 2:  Students cut out their fish from the previous class, and set it aside.  I passed out a blank piece of paper, and students chose blue or red to paint stripes on their background.  After students painted, I came around with the glitter box to add some sparkle to their background.  Once the background was complete, Kindergarteners attached their fish with glue.
